Working with The Extreme Outreach Society, we set up a cart in Blanshard Court to serve hot dogs to kids and play all sorts of games with them like skipping, sidewalk chalk, soccer, tag, and hide and seek. It is a chance to connect with some great kids, serve some hot dogs, and brush up on your BBQ skills!

We leave the school at 3 pm and are back by about 5 pm. You will miss a bit of 5th period, so please talk to your teacher and get permission beforehand to miss some of class. We have a ride down and a chaperone to go with you.

greenteamThe Victoria Green Team has invasive plant removal events coming up on Oct. 1, 15 and 16. Visit their MeetUp page for more information or to sign up. They have various locations and dates available.

The Greater Victoria Green Team is group of people from all over the Greater Victoria area who get together to help restore the local environment in the Capital Regional District. They work with Municipal and Provincial Parks, Charities, Non-profit organizations, Societies, Stewardship and Watershed groups to tackle environmental issues through co-operation and teamwork. They also volunteer at farms to promote local sustainable agriculture. Gloves and tools will be supplied as well as refreshments! All ages are welcome* and no experience is necessary. If you care about the environment, local food security, and meeting other passionate people then this is the group for you!

Volunteers 18 years and under wishing to volunteer are required to have a parent/guardian sign the Greater Victoria Green Team waiver prior to volunteering with the Green Teams. Please email to get a copy of the waiver, and bring the signed copy with you to the event. Failure to bring the signed waiver will prevent you from participating at the event.
